THE-ICE MEMBER BENEFITS
Through its Business Alliance partnership with Hosco, THE-ICE is able to provide its member institutions worldwide with data that will detail the placement success of their students and graduates.
THE-ICE has partnered with Hosco to collect and provide accurate data related to alumni employability for its global network of member institutions. The inputs gathered will enable THE-ICE members to:
- Monitor their placement effectiveness in detail
- Track their graduates’ career development
- Benchmark their employability practices against other member institutions of THE-ICE
- Collect critical information about their students and alumni employment status, including role, department, and job location, to further improve their hospitality programs and employment offers
- Receive time-series data reports to monitor and benchmark their placement activities’ efficacy, to keep improving their employment strategies
The Business Alliance between THE-ICE and Hosco enables members of THE-ICE to validate their quality through detailing the opportunities and career paths their programmes lead to. This information will help THE-ICE members more effectively position themselves in the increasingly competitive higher education landscape. In turn, THE-ICE can ensure that member institutions not only deliver quality during their programmes but, critically, that they deliver quality through their programmes.
In addition to tracking and benchmarking for institutions, students and alumni of THE-ICE member institutions have access to Hosco’s global community to make connections, find jobs, and stay inspired in pursuing a career in hospitality, supporting them to further expand their international placement and employment opportunities.
Hosco is also licensed to provide hospitality schools access to over 1,400 of Lobster Ink’s online industry training courses, used by most of the world’s top hospitality brands, to support their online education, internships and micro-certification development. Through this, THE-ICE has secured a guaranteed minimum discount of 25% for members of THE-ICE off Lobster Ink products purchased through Hosco.
